Christmas Cactus

We bought this Cactus at the Lalbagh Flower show. This show takes place every January during the Indian Republic day. When we bought this cactus, it had one small little flower bud. It was only until december, this cactus showed its true beauty. Suddenly this cactus started popping out small buds at every leaf end and the magic happened between 4th dec to 7th dec. The cactus was in full bloom. (see video below of the transistion)

Later when i checked on the net, I came to know it was a Christmas Cactus. Its so called because it blooms flowers only during the time of Christmas. Also this cactus grows at a elevations between 3300 to 5600 feet. And thankfuly our bangalore is at the perfect elevation for such cactus to grow.
